I would have, but I was terrified it was full of moth lavae. It went straight in the dustbin!

Looking at my blog recently, you might think all I do is buy yarn and never knit it! I have been knitting and trying to finish some of the numerous WIPs I suddenly discovered I had when I blogged back in September in the post “Whirlwind Update“. I have, in fact, finished two of those […]
So why haven’t I blogged for a while? <insert excuses here> It’s all been happening – A horrible cough & cold that has knocked me sideways (6 weeks and only just over it), a massive revamp of the bathrooms and loo in our house (plumbers all over the house for 5 weeks) and two back to […]
I am living up to my membership of the Guilty Knitters as I am officially “guilty” of buying too much (again) at Ally Pally. I really needed a good day out and that’s what I had 🙂 So what did I buy?? You know how I need more Rowan Kidsilk Haze like a hole in the […]
After posting about Vivaldi not quite coming together right, I took her to the Guilty Knitters for a second (third,fourth and fifth) opinion. So there I was, in the middle of the shopping center wearing half made pieces of Vivaldi with all the Guilty Knitters pulling, poking and tugging trying to make it fit. “It’s […]
Vivaldi’s construction is unusual so I wanted to show you the peices layed out before sewing up – Purcey decided to lend a helpful paw… He was quite well behaved and just observed the strangely short back… This didn’t last long… “I’ll just watch the strange shaped neck pieces….” Then I’ll kill that loose bit […]
You’ve already seen my fave piccy of me in my Tabby-Cat but it’s as bad as the Rowan Pic for not letting you see the whole garment… So I’ll show you some of the finished detail then tell you about that Icord gadget 🙂 Better picture where I’m posing with a glass of wine as […]
An exciting, eventful month! Now to catch up with blogging it all….. I had a holiday in Skiathos, Greece (hot, sunny, lovely beach holiday), My lovely sister Carol and her husband Steve stayed in my house and “cat sat” for me while we whooped it up in Skiathos (I had to make sure my tiny […]
I’ve done very well in Hobbycraft again! Ben wanted to go to Hobbycraft to buy a big cutting mat top use as a surface protector and cutting mat on his desk in his man cave. This is where Ben constructs and paints all his models… Of course, I was happy to to tag along for […]
I just had to start something new while I was waiting for a gadget to finish off my Tabby-Cat. Tabby-Cat is all finished and sewn up except for part of the side seams where I need to sew in the ties. I really didn’t like the design of the ties in the pattern – 2 […]
My Tabby Cat is coming along well – that’s the grey, tabby-stripe jumper I’m knitting, not Purcey the new ginger kitten! He is coming along well too 😀 I’ve done the back and front and was storming though the sleeve – it was very straight forward… …Cast on 68 stitches, do the beady edge, knit […]
